54 retired judges petitioned the Wisconsin Supreme Court to consider amending its rule on judicial recusal. The petition seeks a judge to recuse him/herself from a case if a party to such case, which could include an amicus curiae or party’s lawyer, contributed more than a certain dollar amount to the judge’s election campaign. The dollar amount varies depending upon the level of the court. The current rule, which was adopted in 2010, makes clear that a legal campaign contribution or endorsement does not by itself warrant recusal. WBA submitted comments in support of retaining the existing rule, arguing that the current rule correctly and sufficiently provides for appropriate circumstances under which recusal is required.
